Ryan Williams April 18 th 2008 Album Review: Sleep Through the Static There’s trouble in paradise, at least it seems so by Jack Johnson’s fifth album, Sleep Through the Static. The trademark upbeat and easy going grooves that once defined Johnson’s style are spread surprisingly thin in this surfer-turned-musician’s latest album. The new sound may be refreshing to some listeners coming off the heels of 2006’s Curious George soundtrack, an elementary, sugar-coated journey into what borders on children’s music. But Johnson is here to prove that his lyricism extends beyond his ability to write happy-go-lucky songs for moms to bob their head to. His songs take on real issues, like “Sleep Through the Static”, which conveys his stance on the war in Iraq with lines like: “We went beyond where we should have gone”. His decidedly more mature subject matter brings about a more mellow style that may disappoint some of his fan base.
